Miss Zola Woodard and Milton Ward
overturned on the Farmers Mill road
about two miles from Wilson yester
day afternoon shortly after five o'
clock. The other members of the par
ty were slightly bruised. No one was
seriously hurt. At first it was fear
ed that Miss Davis was seriously in
jured, but it developed that she was
Buffering from severe shock and
bruises of a minor nature.
The party was returning to Wilson
in a Ford car driven by Mr. Taylor.
The car met two other automobiles.
In attempting to pass by the other
cars the Ford left the roadway and
overurned in a ditch.
The fact that the car fell across the
ditch probably accounts for the fact
that no one was crushed under the
machine. The top of the car was bad
ly damaged.,. Otherwise the machine
was not damaged and. after being
righted wa: driven to town.
